Subtitled: Voyages of Exploration, 1787-1810

From the blurb: "When Captain Cook died on Hawaii in 1779, Britain was already at war with France and Spain, who had allied themselves with her rebellious American subjects.The new United States secured their independence in 1783 and, as peace resumed, all three rival European powers turned again to considering the opportunities revealed by Cook's work in the Pacific.

"Further expeditions were soon dispatched: some were successful, some disastrous, and the achievements of some are still too little known. This book looks at six of Cook's successors and their Pacific voyages: at Arthur Phillip, founder of the first British colony in Australia; the Comte de Laperouse, whose French scientific expedition vanished without trace; William Bligh, first in the ill-fated Bounty but then successfully in the Providence and in his final role as Governor of New South Wales; Alejandro Malaspina, whose Spanish expedition was forgotten in the oblivion of his later political disgrace; George Vancouver's controversial voyage to north-west America; and Matthew Flinders' charting of Australia and long imprisonment by the French on Mauritius.
